I have been working at The Home Depot full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Stable job, Good job for a retiree, single person, or as a second income.

Cons

Not enough pay by itself to support a family. Little control over work schedule.

Advice to Management

1. There are people who work at HomeDepot who want to go to church from time to time, not just once every 3-6 months. This is my biggest frustration. I have to specifically ask for a Sunday off to go to church, not just expect it every few weeks, as would be reasonable.
2. Lack of overlapping coverage in the departments (at least in my store) is frustrating. There is often not even anyone to cover a meal break.
3. Freight stacking up for over a week in receiving is not acceptable. We need freight (pack-out) associates! And train them properly!

    I have been working at The Home Depot part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good work environment with great people

    Cons

    Have to deal with customer that can be very rude, expected to do large work load at times and also work that should be for higher paid people, Under staffed over winter.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to predict sales better so as to not have to cut hours over winter and leave the store with no one.
